Camp Kaitawa

 ðŸ•Camp Kaitawa!!🏕

MONDAY
Camp Kaitawa was as cool as I remember it to be from the first time, maybe even better this time. When we first got there the teachers showed us around the camp and told us we had to do the undie run aka the undie 500 and we then chose our bunks, after that we went down to the dining room to be told that we would be going to do some rock hopping down at the lake, we saw mahÅ«'s taniwha children in their stone form, we went round a little part of the lake and cut through the bush to get back to our vans, and about half-way back to camp we were told that we would be walking down the pipeline, eventually we got back to camp and went for a kayak. I say kayak, but I just jumped in with a lifejacket, togs and nothing more and went for a swim around, we then had our dinner. We had macaroni and cheese then we got in the vans and went to Lou's lookout, we saw where we went rock-hopping, the walk back was good...for about 2 minutes until Jack found a hole in the ground, so Bevan had to go down and get him out. When we got back to camp, we read a story called noseweed and it was pretty funny, and then we went to bed.
TUESDAY
When we woke up in the morning we had our breakfast, got dressed and went to do our first duties, my group did the showers, but only one person had used the showers so we got to do the basins, mirrors and firewood instead. After that we went down to the dining room and were told what we needed to change into to go to Lake Waikareiti and left. It took like an hour to get to the lake, and when we did it was freezing, It then took an hour to get back, after that we had dinner, it was burgers and chips and went to bed.

MY FAVOURITE BIT 
My favourite bit of our trip was when we went to Lake Kiriopukae, and were jumping around in the stream.   Lots of people got soaked, and when Catherine tried to get over the stream, Sam pushed her in and got the toilet paper wet. Sam made it look so easy when he just walked over it. The wet toilet paper incodent inspired me to make a poem called bog roll.
